DIY Salt Dough Ornaments

Our day 4 Advent activity is “Make an ornament or decoration”  so we made salt dough ornaments last December 4. I’ve been meaning to make this ornament but I just couldn’t find time, as usual December is a very busy month.

Ingredients and materials are always available in your kitchen, all you need is flour, salt and water for dough. Bowl, rolling pin, cookie cutter, straw or paint if you want to color.

Preheat the oven to 325F.
Mix 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup salt and 1/2 cup water and knead the dough. 



Roll the dough and cut shapes using cookie cutter


Place on cookie sheets, make a hole using straw and bake for less than an hour. 

You can paint the ornaments or use food coloring while mixing dough. 



Our salt dough ornaments are not that successful because some puffed so it didn’t look good. But I will make this project again and reduce the thickness and hoping it won’t puff again. We enjoyed doing this activity even it is not that successful.
